COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
De Hopdonder is een zogenaamde Farmhouse India Pale Ale. Kenmerkend is het gebruik van Amerikaanse hoppen met citrustonen in combinatie met een saisongist. Het resultaat is een sterk gehopt, maar toch fris en doordrinkbaar bier met een alcoholpercentage van 6%. Een bier dat vooral in de zomermaanden tot zijn recht komt. Mout Pils-, Munchener-, rogge- en vienna-mout. Hop Centennial, Cascade en Amarillo.

TtV (190) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2015
UPDATED: APR 19, 2015 Bottle 33cl. Yellow with a very tiny white head that fades quite quickly. Aroma is not very special, like pilsner with mild hints of hops and malts. The taste is a bit like pilsner too, only the bitterness up front is stronger because of the use of the American hops.

caesar (5595) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle from Mitra Bunnik, BB 06 2015, large sample, served in a tulip glass. Clear golden to orange color, big frothy off-white head. Aroma of citrussy and grassy hop. slight spicy yeast, pineapple, tannines from the malt (what else from Sallandse). Quite dry in taste, bit metallic, slight bitter, bit sweet, pineapple. Way too dry and way too much carbonation. Sparkling, but not crisp. The carbonation in combination with the bitterness gives it a sharp feel. American bitterhops together with saison yeast and dryness aint a winner.
